Our in-course Insights reporting was built for Instructors to answer questions in a visual way directly in their courses through the Course Overview Widget and Class Engagement Dashboard.
Administrators are responsible for enabling these tools and granting the correct permissions to instructors. After setup is complete, instructors must add the Course Overview widget to their course home page.
The Brightspace Data Platform uses Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) for data storage. Your data is hosted in the same region as your LMS.
To use the email functionality in the Class Engagement tool, enable the d2l.Tools.Classlist.DisplayUsername configuration variable.
The following permissions are required for Course Overview and Class Engagement:
